the rolling chassis will be delivered tomorrow. going to be a rebody.

here are the pics i've got.

series 3 swb landrover, been offered all sorts but held out for a leaf sprung chassis which i thought more in keeping.

going to be a pick up, with a very short bed or maybe a metal trunk if i can find one at not a silly price!!!!

thanks for all the advice guys,

chassis delivered today, in far better condition than expected.

repair needed on n/s chassis rail on inside and bottom. think it'll be a tad easier to repair than the 2cv!!!

heres a few pics, battery was placed on there to show some progress!!!! lol

Are you still doing the 2cv as well, or did you have a change of heart with that one

bit more progress, this is not a mega money build, so after welding(forgot pics of rear spring hanger repair, but it got ratrher involved!!!) i started cleaning chassis up, and out came paint and brush. had 2 tins on the shelf so thought why not.
